The hotel was very well-kept. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location was fantastic. Right in the middle of the pedestrian zone, surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops. About 5 minutes walk from two of the tour bus stops. Just be advised that for anyone staying at a hotel within the pedestrian zone, there are no direct hotel drop offs/pickups by tour companies or airport transfers. It wasn’t too inconvenient and worth it to be in such a vibrant area of Reykjavik. Would easily stay here again.

What we loved about the sand hotel was the cleanliness of the room, and the way it made us feel right at home! The room we had was equipped with, of course, the sleeping area, but was also broken out with a small living space, where we could entertain friends whom we were traveling with. If Iceland did not have so much to offer, we would have probably stayed in our room more than we did. The complementary breakfast, buffet was amazing! The happy hour in the evenings was awesome, and the bar and waitstaff were always friendly, courteous, and always ready to assist. Thank you again.
